Sunday 14th November is Remembrance Sunday. There will be an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village at 10.45am followed by morning worship in the Parish Church at approximately 11.15am. Worship will be led by Rev Phyllis Wilson.
If you are joining us in person, there is no longer any need to book in advance, but we do ask that you try to maintain a safe distance between yourself / your family group and other worshippers while in the church sanctuary. You will still need to wear a face covering throughout the service, use the hand sanitiser provided on arrival and departure and leave your contact details for Test & Protect. Hymn-sheets will be provided but you are very welcome to bring your own copy of the CH4 hymn-book if you have one.
Today marks a year since the beginning of the first lockdown. Below is the link to a short video from Cumbernauld Old to recognise the darkness that has engulfed our nation and people’s lives, with the candle representing a glimmer of hope.
We invite you to please take a moment to reflect and embrace the hope that we share.
Every year in December Cumbernauld Old Parish Church holds a Rainbow Service and this year’s service was scheduled to be on 13th December. The Rainbow Service is particularly for those who have been bereaved, but can be for anyone who finds Christmas particularly difficult.
Usually we invite those at the service to tie ribbons around a tree in the Church to remember their loved ones. This year because of the restrictions we cannot have the service in the Church. However, you are invited to watch the recorded service from this link or from below.
If you would like to, please have a Christmas decoration or your own ribbon and some candles to hand for use during the Act of Remembrance.
May you know God’s enduring love and care this Christmas.
You are warmly invited to join us for worship on Sunday 8th November, Remembrance Sunday. Our prerecorded worship service, led by our minister Rev Elspeth McKay, is available here.
We appreciate that many will be disappointed that there will be no service at the War Memorial this year but, hopefully, you will understand the current circumstances and that this worship service will be a fitting alternative.
As with all our worship services this Sunday’s service is available to all, so please feel free to share with any family or friends. Please also check out our Facebook page for all the latest news from Cumbernauld Old.
Time for Reflection
We hope to have our next ‘Time for Reflection’ in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 15th November at 11am. The Time for Reflection will provide an opportunity for people to come and reflect and pray for half an hour in the church building. In order to ensure as safe an environment as possible, we need to limit the number of people who can attend and so we would invite those who wish to attend to let us know in advance. There will also be an online worship service, and we’ll post the details of that nearer the time.
The Annual Service of Remembrance, including the laying of wreaths and observing the national two minutes of silence, will take place at 10.45am this Sunday, 10th November, at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village.

The annual service of remembrance and memorial for those who have been bereaved – the Rainbow Service – takes place in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 16th December at 3.00pm.

On Sunday 11th November there will be a short Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village at 10.45am.
